Momenta is narrated by world-renowned climber Conrad Anker and features environmentalist Bill McKibben, along with Columbia Riverkeeper’s Executive Director Brett VandenHeuvel and others.

"Momenta is about you, me, everyone who lives here, loves it and cares about what happens to our planet," says Eric Wallis, the Portland-based producer of Momenta. "We set out making this film to demonstrate the overwhelming unpopularity of coal export and crossroads of the American West: old innovation vs. new. We want it to be a step towards winning the campaign against coal export."

Proceeds from the Portland screening will support ongoing Power Past Coal efforts, taking the film to the threatened places it features and beyond.
